    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for brazed steel cylinders with no longitudinal joint and not more than two circumferential joints, of water capacity not less than 0.1 kg nor more than 11 kg, which have test pressures from 1750 kPa to 7000 kPa and are intended for the storage and transport of compressed gases in accordance with AS 2030.1.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for brazed steel cylinders with no longitudinal joint and not more than two circumferential joints, of water capacity not less than 0.1 kg nor more than 11 kg, which have test pressures from 1750 kPa to 7000 kPa, and are intended for the storage and transport of compressed gases in accordance with AS 2030.1.NOTES:1. A gas cylinder manufactured by welding but which includes any brazing of or on the pressure-retaining portions is for the purpose of this Standard considered to be a brazed gas cylinder.2. Other Australian Standards for welded gas cylinders are AS 2469, AS 2470, and AS 35773. Appendix A lists the suggested minimum information that should be supplied by the purchaser when ordering gas cylinders to this Standard.
